Tirweddau coll – Cipolwg ar y gorffennol a rhybudd ar gyfer y dyfodol!

The future impacts of climate change – accelerated by human activity – are now widely reported, discussed and largely acknowledged.  All the evidence indicates there will be an increase in the intensity of the earth’s weather systems leading to enhanced storminess, more droughts and flooding, enhanced melting of glaciers and icecaps, and an increase in global sea-levels.  Yet somehow the implications for us personally can often seem remote and difficult to visualise.  However, the Welsh coastline offers us the opportunity to look into the past to see that rising sea-levels are not a new phenomenon.  Dotted around the Welsh and Irish coastlines, are the remains of pine and oak woodlands and fragmented blocks of peat that point to past and forgotten habitats to the waves that now beat against the shoreline. The CHERISH Project has been working in this intertidal zone to record wrecks and relict archaeological landscapes, which also speak of loss and coastal change.  However, another aspect of our work has been to determine the age of some of the relict landscapes of the Llŷn Peninsular in relation to our work on past sea-level change. Whilst monitoring a wreck on Warren Beach at Abersoch in Gwynedd in 2018,
